Ooty Road: Inspiring students to adopt multiple skills to achieve their goals, Chartered Accountant P M Nandeesh pointed that success not only depends on hard practice but also in encouraging others for collective growth. “The rest depends on how you react to the challenges before you,” he said
He was speaking at the valedictory event of the state-level man-com inter-collegiate cultural competition ‘Prathibha-2K16 Talentedge’, organised by Department of Commerce and Management (UG and PG) of JSS College of Arts, Commerce and Science at its premises on Thursday.
Quoting the thoughts of Swami Vivekananda, he urged students to practice continuously, aiming to reach their goals. “Apart of academics, students should focus on co-curricular activities. According to psychological studies, unexpected incidents can lead to ten percent of our life changes but the remaining 90 percent depends on how you react to situations. Besides, engaging with public life and social services help to understand your personal calibre,” he said.
Speaking in the event, University of Mysore Commerce Fineance Officer Prof B Mahadevappa pointed: “There are lot of vacancies in industries, technology and business firms, while the rate of unemployment keeps going up on the other hand.
